Gillis Gilkerson Completes Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in Millsboro, Delaware
SALISBURY, MD – October 12, 2015 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted general contracting and construction management firms on Delmarva, announced the completion of the new Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen on Commerce Drive within Peninsula Crossing Shopping Center in Millsboro, Delaware.
The 2,800 square foot fast food restaurant was a new construction project for Gillis Gilkerson. The interior décor and style are modeled after New Orleans, Louisiana and the chain offers quick service and seating, accommodating 65 customers. Owner, Mike Abercrombie from CATO Oil LLC is a repeat customer of Gillis Gilkerson after the company built 52nd Street Assawoman Ale Shoppe in Ocean City, Maryland and completed several other renovations to other existing Popeye’s, Goose Creek and Subway stores across Delmarva.
“We are committed to building strong relationships with every one of our customers,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “When a repeat client continues to bring us new projects that relationship very quickly turns into a partnership. It gives Gillis Gilkerson the opportunity to showcase different expertise and talents in the construction management business. We were happy we could again fulfill Mike’s vision for the new Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in a different market and help him grow his business.”
“Gillis Gilkerson is always a pleasure to work with,” said Michael Abercrombie, Popeyes owner. “They assisted with the permitting process from the beginning and have a great reputation for being on time and on budget while delivering a quality product. Delaware is growing and Rt. 113 is a hot spot making Millsboro the crossroads of Delmarva. We are excited to build a new business for locals and travelers alike.”
Project Manager Matt Esham and Superintendent Mike Hillman finished the project less than a month ago and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is open for business.
